An award for the quintessential college, career, and job sites.
Quintessential Careers honors one career or job site each issue of QuintZine with the Quintessential Careers Site Award in recognition of quintessential efforts in helping job-seekers.
February 9, 2009: VisualCV
VisualCV is a true Web 2.0 job-search tool with which the user can turn a traditional resume into a multimedia presentation with video, audio, charts, graphs, presentations, scanned documents, pictures, and a portfolio of best work samples, and other supporting documents. Says the site: “Informational pop-ups provide background data on the companies you’ve worked at and the colleges you’ve attended. You can securely share different versions with your own network of employers, colleagues, and friends, and control who sees what.” The site even contends that a VisualCV can serve as “a proxy for that first interview.”
No cost to users for basic services. The site plans to later add fee-based premium services.
